It's getting late, but we are waiting to see how the Tigers do in the play-offs.
The game has been exciting tonight, and we are hopeful that Detroit will walk away with a win.
I am still working on trying to camouflage the ugly "pretend" fireplace that was here when we moved in.
I recently found a beautiful architectural piece of pressed tin at the market while shopping with Laurie.
It was in it's raw state, with a beautiful patina.
Originally I wasn't going to paint the piece, but the more I looked at it, I realized the design didn't show.
So, this afternoon I painted the piece white. Then rubbed it for a worn look, and waxed it.
I attached the piece to the existing shelf above the cute little mantel I also found at the market.
I also draped more linen runners over the shelf.
The galvanized pieces from the table are now on the little mantel.
Seed lights are inside the hearth, giving off a warm glow.
The other shelf is also sporting a new look.
I seriously don't understand why the previous owners thought this arrangement looked good???????
Oh well, you work with what you have, and hope for the best.
Oh yay! the Tigers just won the ball game!!
Now we can go to bed.
